    Has anyone sold their mpc to move to software? I had a 2000XL 2 years ago. I had the itch to get the 2500. So far i have live 7, reason4, axiom 61, mpd 32. I don't know if its worth buying a 2500 around december. i was gonna save till december to get either the 2500 or new computer. What do you thonk?

    i think anyone who trades an mpc to purchase software shall be electricuted, prostituted, and executed by way of swift kicks to the crotch....

    but as far as saving for a new computer??? thats a tough one, just be sure that whatever computer you get is pimped out for creating music.

    Don't plan on getting rid of the MPC, probably upgrade to a second hand 4000, or drag my ass to get the 2500, which is likely not on my mind at the time. The feel of being away from the computer and not relying on it to make your music is my thing. Computers, you have to deal with CPU processing power, RAM upgrades, OS Architecture, etc b.s. It is just more comfortable with the MPC, then the PC.

    The official status of MPCs in no way will be replaced by software of any kind (Funknstien got the penalty right) the only benefit to the 2500 is real time recording (ie if u play gtr, bass, etc.) otherwise, u can save $ on the 1000, download software upgrades, and have all the functions of 2000+. Software production is one of the major contributing factors as 2 why music today sounds so generic. Keep ya hands in it!

    I've been thinking about just buying software synthesizers, to use for my keys/synths/brass/strings (whatever). But I don't think I could use software for my drum patterns. I don't see the MPC (1000) leaving my studio anytime soon, ever.

    the mpc isn't the center of my production. my mind is. the mpc is just my tool of choice to put my work in.

    I made the switch and my tracks havent been jeopardized in the process

    www.myspace.com/fmajor as long as you are comfortable and creative mpc or not you can get down. I love mpcs though, its just not a necessity for me in a studio setting. I would say if you dont have to sell your mpc then just keep it as another creative tool and dont treat it like its the master of your music.

    **** an MPC.

    I seriously don't like them, at all. I prefer keys over pads (Crazy, I know) and I prefer most software sequencing over hardware.

    Now I'd buy an ASR-10 and use that in a second for sampling, but I had an MPC for 6 months, hated it.

    MPCs aren't for everyone.

    which MPC did you have?
